Gareeda – The Director’s Half-Cut

This week see’s the official release of the new Gareeda record “The Director’s Half-Cut”.

A selection of older songs the band wanted to re-record along with a few new tracks thrown into the mix. This was recorded here around October time in 2016 but the mixing didn’t get finished until March 2017…. It’s been quite a long road with this one but it turned out pretty good!

Check it out below

Cheers!

Psychotic Depression – Thirty Hours Work Or Less

February 2017 saw Psychotic Depression coming into the studio to record their debut ep ‘Thirty Hours Work Or Less’.

The guys fairly rattled through the recording process and the mixing was completed fairly quickly aswell!

I’m really happy with how it all turned out  & you can check it out below… For fans of The Obsessed & Trouble

A Lake Of Ghosts

Last year I recorded & mixed Of Spire & Throne​’s re-working of the My Dying Bride classic “My Wine In Silence”.
It was included on Doom-metal.com’s 2 disc tribute to My Dying Bride which is available now!

This was quite a lot of fun to work on as the whole thing was recorded & mixed very quickly. The guys wanted a very rough & ready sound to counter the usual,over produced sound of MDB.
Check it out & also check out the other fantastic contributions to this compilation!

Enjoy!

New Gear

Well… I’ve had a good few months of upgrading gear for the studio!

In the last 3 months I have upgraded to an Apple Imac 2.8ghz quad core which has loads more processing power than the old Macbook I was using.

I’ve upgraded my monitors to JBL LSR308 speakers. These have much better mid & low range as well as much better imaging than my old Alesis monitors. Very pleased with these 🙂

I’ve moved up to Pro-Tools 12, although I still have Logic X if anyone prefers that system.

I’ve got a load of Slate digital plugins, which are really, really nice! Some of the nicest digital EQ’s I have used, in fact 🙂

Lastly, I’ve picked up some nice deals on DI boxes & mics which round out the mic locker….

Live room is taking shape & I should hopefully get some photos up soon. Control room is still in flux but will hopefully get a more permanent solution in the game soon!
